Hello all,

Wondering what is everyone's routine when bringing home a haul from reef conventions like reefapoolza?

Do you remove the frags from the plugs, dip them, and then acclimate into QT?

Some do some dont. I think it has to do with how careful you want to be. Some people are ultra careful some dont really care

What would ultra careful look like?
I'd dip them just be sure. I also inspect the frags and if I see anything suspect on the plug I'll remove it and put it on a new plug before putting it in the frag tank. No corals go directly into my display tank.

Personally it depends on the coral for me.

Lps and softies always get dipped and possibly move to a new frag plug.

Sps it all depends. I’m not dipping a smooth skin and I only remove from plug if it’s not encrusting a lot.

After the dip it’s straight into my DT tank
